The Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort, which opened in Autumn 2016, perches on the cliff side of Oman’s Jabal Al Akhdar (Green Mountain) in the Saiq Plateau, sitting 2,000 metres above sea level. In addition to its recent award, the resort featured in the popular BBC show Top Gear and has also received praise for its traditional, yet contemporary architectural and landscape design.

The Anantara Spa offers guests a tranquil experience through various treatments and rituals and sits separately within the wider breadth of the resort. The sense of tranquillity is amplified by the surrounding landscape, with winding pathways bordering stretches of land planted with a variety of indigenous vegetation and reflecting the beauty of the surrounding mountainside. The Anantara Spa was praised for matching the hotel's reputation for the "highest five-star in the Middle East".
